Program Description:

Resident artists participate in a 9-month residency from September through June. Each artist is assigned to a public library where they teach, mentor youth, and create new work in the library’s community room–3 hours are allocated to teaching and 10 hours may be spent making artwork on a weekly basis. The artists teach students of varying age groups three classes per week using a curriculum of their design. Artists create their academic year-long curriculum prior to the Fall semester in order to be well equipped and prepared. ProjectArt maintains a 15:1 resident student ratio with 15 students enrolled in each one-hour class; each resident mentors a total of 45 youth per library.

ProjectArt encourages its resident artists to embrace their creativity and think outside the box. They are not restricted to using the library’s community room – the main library space is often available to artists who want to create art for the library. Using an assortment of non-toxic and library permitted mediums, many resident artists make works that are inspired by the library setting, its patrons, and reference collection. They also get to know the library patrons and managers, as well as ProjectArt staff. The residency culminates in a professionally curated resident group exhibition at a partner gallery, featuring works created by the residents during the year.
